Casey At The Bat

Interesting race up in Buffalo, where Democrat education activist Thomas Casey is challenging incumbent Sen. Dale Volker, a Republican, in a race where school reform is becoming an issue. Casey wants more charter schools in the inner city. "I would fight for school choice for the parents who want it," Casey tells the Buffalo News. He's got some other interesting education stances.

Volker also digs school choice.

One more race where the mainstream position on both sides calls for significant changes to the status quo in the public education landscape.
